Serious Games: Online Games for Learning, by Anne Derryberry

I got a few minutes to kill before heading home and as usual, I googled a bit and came across a very interesting article about Serious Game in education.

The article covers the potential of Serious Games in education. It also asks and answers some of the initial questions that challenge decision-makers, designers, and developers alike:

Download the article and give it a read, you will be intrigued just like me :)

Have fun reading.
